THE CIVIL WAR COURIER and SCV Cooperate in Publicizing Events:
Compatriots, I have spoken to Connie Payne, an editor of the Civil War Courier, Camp Chase Gazette and the Citizens Companion, regarding having SCV news and event information in these publications. We are being offered the opportunity to send our event announcements and / or post event reports for publication. This is a great opportunity to have your Division and Camp news reach a greater audience. Below you will find information on when / how information should be submitted for publication.
Notices should be sent to Connie Payne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lets take advantage of this chance to get the word out to "keep the skeer on!"
Chief of Staff
All press releases, articles or other written items should be submitted as a MS WORD document. There is no word limit.
All photographs to accompany such articles should be submitted as jpgs, preferably in raw files. Photos will be croped and resize as needed so as to not lose resolution and print quality. If the contributor prefers to crop and size at home, a standard image is 4x6 or 5x7 at 300 dpi.
Photographs must include a caption which clearly explains the image, as well as the photographes namer to ensure that proper credit is given.
Charts, spreadsheets or graphs can be submitted as jpgs, or as pdfs
The Civil War Courier generally deadlines runs 4-6 weeks "out" from the date on the magazine or newspaper. For example, the October edition of the Camp Chase Gazette has a deadline to submit event or other notices of August 25th for inclusion in the October issue. That being said, here are the dealines for each issue for the coming year.
